Good question. This was based on the types of questions fielded in the 
RT system in 2016, compared to our knowledge of the types of questions 
fielded in 2012 (there was significant overlap between the core teams of 
LCA2012 Ballarat and LCA2016). There were fewer "I can't find this type 
of information on the Wiki" questions in 2016.

Because several statements in the qualitative feedback in the survey 
mentioned that the IA was effective. Additionally, the user journey 
reports in Google Analytics also indicated that the user journeys were 
short (ie page A, B then exit at C) rather than indicative of a user 
base that was getting lost (A, C, F, G, exit at B).
